The Cobra boat

Some of you may know that my hubby and I are fixing a boat. I told Valroe I would post some pictures. We are not done yet. But it will look nice when we finish. For now we will paint it a dark blue. And next year I will do the assume details of the camouflage.

Here are some pictures of the boat before we started.

Yes as soon as boat is done we will be taking if for its first spin. If all goes well we will be having lots of fun this summer. We will fish as well as water skying.

So here are some more pictures of the work we are doing on the boat.

Seems like a nice project going on there, Baroness. What engine are you guys planning using on the boat? 25 horsepower would be barely enough for water-skiing.

Here are some more pictures of our progress. The boat is starting to look more like a boat now. Instead of a pile of junk.

This is the transom put back on before the seacast is poured.

Well depends on how soon we can get it in the water. It still isn't finished. Also depends on how soon you get your butt to Canada. LOL.

at the end of the day, do it well and do not rush a single part. Because at the time of launch till the day it sinks you will have more pleasure. And Ski-ing is as good as it gets, unless u attach a winch and attempt paragliding.

That is Lake Ontario.

It was a nice day to test the boat. Everything went well.

The picture of the sun behind the clouds is my favorite picture.

Nice pictures. The picture of the sun behind the clouds has a good composition too. The position of the boat and the horizon fulfills one of the basic composition rules; "Rule of Thirds" :wink:.
